Bantu

Profile:
BANTU’s Music is the sound of Lagos. The bustling megapolis which the band calls home serves as muse and backdrop for their sonic adventures that celebrates and explore the complexities and contradictions of navigating daily life in the city of dreams and chaos. The music of the 13-piece award winning collective lead by German-Nigerian musician Ade Bantu is a fusion of Afrobeat, Afrofunk, Highlife and Yoruba music. Driven by a strong desire for social justice the band’s lyrics address issues around corruption, injustice, migration, xenophobia and urban alienation.
Asides from recording and composing music BANTU aka Brotherhood Alliance Navigating Towards Unity have been credited with the recent revival of the live music scene in Nigeria through Afropolitan Vibes a monthly concert series & music festival that they have been hosting for over 7 years in Lagos. The show has featured over 160 top Nigerian and international acts and was voted as “one of the world's best music events of the moment" by The Village Voice. BANTU has recorded with the likes of Seun Kuti, Patrice, Nneka, Xavier Naidoo, Tony Allen, Orlando Julius, UB40, Gentleman and many others. Their forthcoming album “Everybody Get Agenda” is slated for release in September 2020.
